The Ho Chi Minh National Academy and Public Administration on September 23 opened a training course on popularisation and training work for officials of the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party.

Addressing the opening ceremony, Associate Prof. Dr. Nguyen Tat Giap, the academy’s Deputy Director, laid stress on the importance of Party officials being competent in popularisation and training to spread theories and thoughts of the Lao Party and State.

The course has helped to consolidate and further develop the special solidarity and friendship between the two countries, he said.

During the Hanoi-based three-month course, trainees will be equipped with the fundamentals of Marxism-Leninism and Ho Chi Minh Thought as well as the viewpoints and guidelines of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) on the path to socialism.

They will learn about Vietnam’s experience in socio-economic development as well as the popularisation and training work during its renewal process.-VNA
